Viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus.

Viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus (VHSV) is the aetiological agent of viral haemorrhagic septicaemia (VHS) and is a member of the family Rhabdoviridae within the order Mononegavirales. These viruses have single-stranded, negative-sense (nega) RNA genomes with enveloped bullet- or cone-shaped nucleocapsids. One of the most remarkable features of VHSV is its broad host range, wherein 28 species of fish are infected by genotype IVb in the Great Lakes and about 80 species are affected by all four genotypes. This article discusses the diagnosis; pathology; pathophysiology, pathogenesis and virulence factors; protective and control strategies against VHSV.
